Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degrees, Minors, and Certificates

Bachelor of Science in mechatronics engineering technology provides graduates real-world experiential education combined with personalized undergraduate experiences in mechanical, electrical, and computer control systems, as well as engineering design and management. The core courses include both mechanical and electrical fundamentals, principles and design concepts with a focus on materials handling systems, automation and manufacturing systems, embedded systems design, and industrial robotic.

This bachelor’s degree program is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in today’s highly integrated computer controlled manufacturing. Throughout their curriculum, students are required to co-op in industry in their second or third year of the program, which often continues and leads to full-time employment. Graduates with a rigorous theoretical education and multidisciplinary technical skills are well prepared for engineering and technology positions in applied design, development, implementation, or oversight and maintenance of electromechanical systems and processes.

Students are required to complete the core plus one track. A minor is not required.
